I was just thinking that this would be really cool seeing this in FH or FH2. Since it was mostly used for tank recovery, which i dont think trailers are possible in BF of BF2, maybe it can be used as a ammo/repair vehicle. I dunno. Its really big, as you can see in this picture (its only a model though in the photo, but you can see the size of it next to the tank its towing.) http://hsgalleries.com/images/famoandpzivsp_1.jpg would be cool seeing something this big in FH2

Holy crap is huge. If it can tow tanks too, I don't see why not...

It's completely un-armoured. Even though it could pull 18 tons up to three were needed to pull a Tiger, but invariably the towing cable would break under the strain. It could pull anything up to a Panzer IV, before multiple vehicles were needed. A lot of the time the recovery crews were operating under heavy fire.

I've seen an Sd.Kfz 7 (8-ton) halftrack, like this one. The plates going up next to the seats are quite thick, probably 5mm or something like that. I'd assume that those would offer some protection. I'm reckoning that the SdKfz9-sides are similarly made.
